Went out with a fellow BoC member the other night, and he had monster rod holders. I've been on several boats and I've used several different holders. From the plastic ones, all the way up to these guys. Monster Rod Holders are simply the best rod holder out there. It's so easy to take the rod out of the holder, and the double action feature on the holders made it so easy to switch from anchoring to drifting in no time at all. I wouldn't recommend anything but these guys. I know several guys buy alternative rod holders and then get the monsters, but go big and get these right away. When I get a boat, I'll be buying quite a few, I can't have it any other way. Great product Steve!
